I had some leatherette leftover from covering the dining room chairs - it was too good to waste so I set about making something out of it.
I wanted to make a bag so I discovered a preloved silky top to use as a lining and put them together.
And I just knew that the leatherette was going to be super resilient.
I just went with the flow to make this one. Small bag - check. Handle - check. Tab - check. Lining - check.
I added a magnetic snap to the tab and used preloved O rings for the handles.
Ah, the handles LOL! I had a go at making the handles with the leatherette. But that meant sewing through maybe 8 layers of thick leatherette with my sewing machine. My machine decided she wasn't having any of it so I opted to use the lining to add a smattering of colour to the outside of the bag instead.
I had loads of fun putting this together!
It's also got a bottom on it so that you can put more things into it. My kind of bag!
